The hormones were raging but in a very happy way! This past weekend was my cousin’s baby shower. I was surrounded by darling new mommies or mommies-to-be. I felt like a droopy, un-Vogue-like mother of 3 in her 40s. Oh wait… I think I need some retail therapy. David counter-suggested some gym therapy. One of the cute shower activities was to provide Carrie with some parenting advice. One guest rightfully noted that this baby would be well-dressed, have a good hairstyle, be well organized and always on time. My advice was “you just think you are in charge.” Too cynical?
I know you’ve been waiting to hear what items were on the final menu. Drum roll please. Here is what graced the plates of her fun friends and family:
